Comments
Comments: Excellent day for a Presi Traverse. Mild temps and very little wind with bright sunshine. The traverse was made more difficult due to the snow. About 12" on the ridge between Washington and Eisenhower with knee deep drifts. One had to be careful where one placed their feet so as not to step into hidden holes. It made for very slow going. We wore spikes the whole day for added traction. Hiked with a great group today and saw a few familiar faces along the way.
